at the white house, president obama talking about the fiscal cliff. john? >> i wanted to play a soundbite from the bloomberg interview that i mentioned to sue a few minutes ago. one yes offered a carrot to say if you do that in the short term, put revenue on the table concretely in that way, we will have a long process of tax entitlement reform that could end up reducing the rate in 2013. here is the president. >> not able to come up with a comprehensive tax reform package that gets it all done just in the next two weeks. we are not going to be able to come one necessarily comprehensive entitlement reform package that gets it all done in the next two weeks. when you luke at what ronald reagan did back in 1986, working with bill bradley and others, that was a year and a half process. what i have suggested is let's essentially put a down payment on taxes, let's let tax rates on the upper income folks go up. >> now, the difficulty of tax reform has been a concern of the white house throughout this discussion, all the way back to 2011. it's why they insisted on the top rates going up. at that time

the obama administration's singular and immediate focus on the anti-islam video? >> why did you just focus on that part for so long rather thansay, look, it's not a black and white issue. >> one of the motivations may very well be either the video, the response to the video in cairo, and, certainly, that's not ruled out. >> fox news has confirmed the decision to shut down the cia annex was made in the early morning hours of septemr 12th after it took indirect fire, and while the annex was cleared of classified material and equipment in less than ten hours, the consulate less than a mileway has never been secured, lou. lou: we hear very little about who made the decision not to respd with military, para-military forces to support, and perhaps save, four americans who were killed in the attacks. >> well, here privately on capital hill from lawmakers, they wondered if the president meant there were not the assets available in the mediterranean to respond quickly. what we're seeing in the next few weeks, soon with open hearings the public can watch on capital hill, is refocusing on this -- thi

said republicans are raising a white flag as big as a bed sheet. is that how you see it? >> it is interesting if you look at the negotiations that president obama offered this massive tax increase with no concessions and this sort of outrageous request on the debt limit which was a really aggressive first offer. and then the republican s countered with a moderate reasonable plan exactly modeled after a proposal by erskine bowles. so if you're trying to handicap the negotiations, you'd have to concede that dana is on to something. >> really. so -- >> at least like the starting point. so basically the starting point for the republicans is what president obama probably would have viewed as a victory if they had the negotiation. >> yeah, he wanted another 400 supposed supposedly. how does simpson-bowles get to -- how does it raise revenue? what's the number that it raises? >> well, it depends because they have a bunch of different simpson-bowles plans. like in the bowles-simpson report, there are three different tax plans and then the thing that the republicans modeled after
president obama invited the major players to the white house to discuss the situation. as of this morning, no new talks are scheduled. brianna keilar joins us. so many republicans say they are pessimistic about a deal happening in time to avert this fiscal cliff. some say it's for political reasons. what can you tell us? >> it may all be for political reasons. that's no surprise in washington. as you can seen through dealmaking not just on this but things in the past couple of years between the white house and congress, there is almost this rhythm that has evolved. both sides are pointing to the other for an impasse. republicans like senator lindeyy graham just slamming the white house and tim geithner for a plan he laid out on behalf of the administration, laying out about $1.6 trillion in new revenues coupled with only about $400 billion in medicare cuts. listen to what graham said. >> i think we're going over the cliff. it's pretty clear to me they made a political calculation. this offer doesn't remotely deal with entitlement reform in a way to save medicare, medicaid and social secur
right now. the last couple of months, you've gone to the white house, met president obama. i heard he gave you some souvenirs, as well. >> yes. he gave me a pen and presidential m&ms. >> you still have the m&ms? >> no. >> i guess they are pretty good. and we all watched you on "dancing with the stars." >> yes. >> the fierce five showing up to help shawn out. that must have been fantastic. >> it was a lot of fun. and we had so much fun performing on stage with shawn and derek. >> so, what is next? you're on the book tour right now. going to have a little break over christmas. but gymnastics, still in your blood, right? >> i'm hoping to attend 2016 and get back into the gym. get back in the swing of things. and just gain more. i want to go to more world championships. and i think it would be cool to attend two more olympic games. >> it would be cool for all of us. thank you for coming in today. the book is called "grace, gold & glory." it's in stores today. >>> when we come back, a hol >>> back, now, with a real favorite of ours, katherine jenkins. with us throughout the "dancing with t
with president obama is he is a small minded president. >> steve: the white house immediately rejected the republicans' man ask said it wasn't balanced, even though it is balanced. it does actually raise revenue. democrats want the tax rates to go up. >> brian: they had a christmas party last night, the speaker and president were there. the word is they were going to talk. maybe they did. five minutes after the hour. let's change gears. prince william arriving at the hospital where kate middleton is waking up after suffering severe morning circumstanceness. what's that? >> gretchen: the condition -- is hard to pronounce. it strikes 2% of expecting moms. it can be an indicator of something else, which is twins. joining us to weigh in, dr. mark siegle. it's hyper something or another. >> vomiting, pregnant. go back to the latin. >> steve: thank you very much. >> 1 to 2% of all pregnancies have this. actually it's the number two cause of hospitalization after preterm labor. it's a big problem. morning sickness, 80% of women, everyone knows about that. severe morning sickness, when you con
that president obama doesn't do regularly. and that is take a lot of questions from the white house press corp. that is where you get stronger and better answers, sometimes deeper answers to questions that america deserves to know. not -- the problem for president obama is that who he talked to yesterday is a narrow slice of the audience. more people know about that now than would have ever seen it on that other network. he needs broaden out and talk to and try to persuade people that are not just on the left. >> brian: you remember you invited charles charles and other conservatives before he actually took office? >> remember, they were charmed and they said, huh, maybe this is going to go better than we thought. and then they were bitterly disappointed. >> steve: let's talk a little bit about this. the congressman from in texas, steve forbes out yesterday talking about look, we've got to do something about taxes. the president is even talking a little bit about it. we need a flat tax rather than raising taxes. here is a little snippet of congressman gilbert. listen. >> when you hear fair sha
leaders made their counter offer to president obama and officials quickly dismissed it. major garrett is at the white house this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. there's no prospect for a deal and not much talking going on either. for the first time there are numbers on the pieces of paper from the white house and the congressional republicans. there are disagreements from both sides of how serious those numbers are. for the first time there are boundaries to find agreement in the middle if those numbers yield themselves to politics. republicans put their plan in writing. the white house says it should have saved the paper and ink. republicans remain opposed to raising income tax rates. overall, their plan is lighter on taxes and heavier on spending ing cuts than the white house prefers. gop offered $800 billion in tax increases by eliminating or reducing unspecified deductions. $600 billion in entitlement cuts and $300 billion. white house wanted $600 billion in cuts but no inflation to adjustments. republicans also want to r
on this, although it seems like we don't. the two sides, though, fair hi fair apart. the white house proposal on the table, boehner call it a joke. the white house called it magii beans and ferry dust. president obama in the negotiation drew a line he had yet to draw. >> we're going to have to sew the rates on the 2% go up. we're not going to be able to get deal without it. >> been no deals of this mag magnitude made in congress and forced on reluctant president. i hope the president would turn off the campaign, congratulations, you had a great victory, and let's get serious about dealing with this deficit and debt here at the end of the year. >> back to the president's comments. he had yet before to explicitly say rates had to go up on those earning $250,000 or more. that was the white house position. that is their condition now for a deal. it's in the face of what republicans want saying no rate increases; however, a little wiggle room, and the president didn't rule out a smaller rate increase than he's calling for could be a part of a final product if they get to that stage. liz
-- stuart: judge, hold on a second. i'm sorry. speaker boehner is about to respond to president obama's demand that we raise tax rates. listen in, please. >> and it's exactly how we approached our discussions in the biden group, my discussions at the white house a year and a half ago, and for that matter in the joint select committee. and if the president doesn't agree with our proposal and our outline, i think he's got an obligation to send one to the congress and a plan that can pass both chambers of congress. if you look at the plans that the white house has talked about thus far, they couldn't pass either house of the congress. we're ready and eager to talk to the president and to work with him, to make sure that the american people aren't disadvantaged by what's happening here in washington. >> good morning. you know, i think at this point pretty much most folks in the country and certainly in this town know where both sides are on taxes. i think we understand that. but to the speaker's point, we have not had any discussion and any specifics with this president about the real pro

that the white house asked her to come on because they felt that she would emphasize the points that the obama administration wanted emphasizing. that's what's discoaging to me. i don't think it's a coincidence that secretary of state hillary clinton declined the opportunity to go on those shows. i think she realized that the secretary of state -- and i would argue the u.n. ambassador -- should be above politics, should not be talking about a very contentious issue right in the midst of a hard-fought political campaign. >> greta: one of the things you spoke about at the press conference today, when you spoke to reporters, 1998, our embassies were bombed. prior to the bombings, apparently ambassadors asked for more security, and 12 americans were murdered, plus many more murdered in those two bombings. ambassador rice worked at the state department. were you satisfied with the questions she asked about what she knew in terms of any of the requests for protection or beefing up security? i know you asked her those questions. >> i did ask her those questions. we take a look at the 1998 accountabil

from president obama and john boehner. >> no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. the white house has to get serious. >> republicans know where we stand. we've said it, we've said it, we've said it so many times. >> i think all of us today are confident we can reach a bipartisan agreement by christmastime. >> according to congressional republican aides who have talked to the "wall street journal," they say they have obtained a copy of the white house's proffer here in the fiscal cliff negotiations. >> do you have faith in any of them to rise above? >> would it be okay to go over? >> we will rise above. >> one can only hope. so how should investors brace themselves for the big week ahead? in today's trader triple play, jeff kilburg, along with mahir dongei. steve, you get to go first. would you have expected that today basically a flat-line kind of day for the dow and s&p and so forth, would have been more volatile given greece, given the comments out of washington and in pennsylvania? >> i certainly would have.
